L3 as of 4/9/2013

Description 

This is a new route in the corridor- the third on your left as you enter the lower tier, it ascends an obvious line of features.

  • Care should be taken on this route as many of the features are hollow and the route is still shedding rock. The bolts are also spaced somewhat, so be mindful.


Location 

Third route on left.


Protection 

Bolts to anchor

I don't recall much if any loose rock on this one. Thought this was easier than the two 5.9s to the left.

Climbed this today and most of that flake halfway up is now gone. There's still some left that seems pretty weak, so I wouldn't recommend trying to use it. Climb around left or right -- either is harder than the rest of the route.

The big hollow flake about 30 feet up was intentionally torn off by visiting climbers while lowering off on 5/15/12. Bravo for their public service! The climb is much safer, although quite dusty below the demolition. And it's probably a bit harder now. Still needs traffic to spruce it up.

I lead this before the flake came off, but did not feel comfortable leading it after the flake came down. Just be aware that it is a different climb now.

Felt kind of Slab like. I am not that much of a confident climber and it had some decent runout to the anchor when I clipped into the anchor the last bolt was about 10 to 15 feet below my shoes.

Seems pretty clean now, I think the PG13 can be removed.
